    Good Black Women are indeed all around you.
    You pass them on the streets, in the malls,
    in captivity behind the walls, and the halls at work.
    Most time you can't recogonize her
    because you don't know what she looks like.
    She usually isn't fine enough, revealing enough,
    flashy enough, or rich enough to turn your heads.
    She might not wear the designer labels or push a Lex.
    She might not have a "Body by Fisher" or a face for "Ebony",
    but as you grow into a real man, you'll learn to look beyond that
    you'll know it's better to find one who's got your back
    than find someone who only turns your head.
    She's not going to meet every item on your checklist.
    She is human so she'll come with some frailties and faults
    She got her own mind so sometimes you will clash,
    However, she can admit to being wrong at times,
    Especially if you`re willing to do the same.
    Don't judge her by Magazines or TV standards.
    No one is living that Fairy tale--for real.
    Good Black Women are indeed all around you

    Thank you for speaking on all the beautiful black woman, all around us who go un-noticed. A very eloquent piece. I appreciate the vibe you have been on with this piece, and " A guide to loving a black man" Much snaps! :star:

    Some or most times, as boys, they tend to rumble in shattered glass,
    scattered here and in-between...
    But! ...
    When they become a Man & King...
    their search is for that special Queen.

    Great write poet ...^5
